A cuppa woe

When a driver slid across three lanes and cut him off in San Diego, Barry Rothman angrily honked at her. Whereupon she rolled down her window and complained, ``Your horn scared me and I dropped my phone into my coffee."

Guess she just had some bad car-ma.

As for coffee mishaps...

I've had my share. In fact, when I order a cup, I now routinely ask the barista to leave room for my cellphone.

The next Olympic sports?

Bill Moore of Los Feliz discovered that the Boy Scout Store website offers patches for some events that might draw big crowds at the Games. They pay tribute to such competitors as, in order, ambulance chasers, ladder divers and shopping cart racers.


The Boy Scout Store is not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, as you may have guessed.

By coincidence...

"Duh!" Award-Winner

Thanks for the warning...
